I heard a pastor and a preacher make racist remarks and it has troubled me. So, it made me wonder, is there really bible scripture for not dating/marrying another race than what you are? I know there's many ppl out there that don't believe in God and biblical teachings. Please don't reply to this jokingly, mean, or just to tell me how you don't believe in this and how Christians are in your eyes, because I have already read the posts of "Church or Cult" I'm not trying to start a war. I am looking for truth and ground to this concern that I have. I want to know what to teach my children. I believe that it is wrong to be racist and I don't understand how men of God that say they have been called to preach can sit back and think that it would be awful for their daughter to have a black boyfriend/husband. How are these ppl that feel that going to be in Heaven with ppl of different race? Am I wrong??Again, serious comments only please.

in the bible it talks about moses marring a black woman, it has never stated anywhere about not marring a person of diffrent race but it is looked down on by alot of people.if u choose to do this just be ready for alot of pressure.

bible wise there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

the people and society themselves are the ones who have a big problem with it but not God.the preacher was wrong ,but dont take my word for it look in the bible yourself

Bible specifies that a christain is not to be yoked with a non-christian, says nothing about marrying outside of your race-(to my knowledge).

this person NEVER asked you if it was looked down upon, she asked if there were scripture. Ignorant people look down on a LOT of things , who cares was uneducated simpletons think, if it is love GO FOR IT!

No there is no scripture against marrying a person of a different race. We are all gods children. By the place Jesus was born he was naturally not light skinned,light haired or blue eyed as Americans often have him pictured. Reckon people will be suprised? Shame on that pastor and preacher, pentecostal no doubt?

Moses married a Cushnite.She was a Ethiopian woman. Someone said something about the Bible saying, we should not be unequally yoked.I've alway's been taught that it means that a believer in God should not marry a non believer.

I have loved a black man and I still do to this day.we are together now but that was 1 time in my life i felt complete as a person and as a christian women. we both believed the same as far as religion goes and his family could make anyone want to be a good person. I miss him and his family but I pray so hard that we will walk right back into each others life and I was the one that messed up on him.

Whites should marry their own race. Women in the Bible traveled for many days and for miles and miles in order to marry their own kind. Marry your own kind, children. It will save you many many many heartaches down the road of this life.

here is where lot people get confused in gen.1 27 i think where god created all racist and he like them told them be fruitful multiply then was thr 7 th day he rested .ok look in gen 2and 7 where he formed adam out the dust of the ground .this is not the 6th day man its the 8th day man.all other rac was on the 6th day this adam was a farmer to keep the garden .and the name adam simply means red man.so there is all races .recorded in gen.the only way one could go rong on race mixing .is where god made all things and said everything to its own kind.but it was not talking about mixing race it was the animals and things on earth he had made like cows and horses .like you wouldnt put a bear with a chicken.it would eat it.just common sense .mix race wont send no one to hell.

Not so fast. If you are talking about different species say a bird and a dog no it wont work but black and white dogs work just fine.

If two people love each other . So like black and white dogs or different color cats or what ever.

Try thinking of all races belonging to the human spices.
I think that is the answer you seek.

Did you get your information from Pastor Arnold Murray? What you wrote sounds a lot like his teachings.
